Box Measures 15 X 27 X 2 3/4. Check out my other Sealed Sets!!! This is NOT --- one of the below items. I have just purchasing some figures that was made in 1980 just shortly after the Marx Plant shut down. These figures were made with Marx Molds, With Marx employees and in the Marx Factory and they have the Marx Stamp on the base.
Most of the items are of very high quality and many of them are in a very Rare color, not the usual production colors. Here's the paragraph you requested. From late 1980 to the spring 1981 as the Marx Toy Company was facing bankruptcy proceedings, a small group of outside investors paid to have premium shots of the historically popular molds shots in the Girard plant by the senior Marx employee , Gene Rocco, in concert with the company's conservators. The molds has been collected, inventoried, and monitored by the conservators in Girard. Since the plastic shots were being prepared for potential marketing photos, each shot was carefully handled as it came off the mold to insure straight rifles, swords, spears, bows, etc.Our goal was to create realistic color schemes without painting. The different horse molds, f or example, were shot in white, then blending to tan, blending to darker browns, then blending to grays and then darker into black. In another example, the cavalry molds and all civil war figures were shot in both light and dark blues and grays. All Alamo Mexican soldiers were shot in tans blending to various blues and reds. The results were some very nice color variations. But each color was also shot uniformly for each standard color-because toy stores would need standardized colors.
In 1981, however, the Vietnam War had gutted the U. Public's interest in toy soldiers, Romans , western themes, and even Robin Hood themes. The marketing plans failed, and 99 percent of the plastic figures and accessories were placed by the last investor into a nice storage facility. Several of these items are Unusual color, not the color that Marx made them in the 1960's and 1970's.
